-election, this was john mccain's position on immigration. >> complete the dang fence. >> it will work this time? senator, you're one of us. >> i'm john mccain and i approve this message. >> and then, on november 6th, 2012, they lost 71% of the hispanic vote to president obama, and literally after that, they started to talk about compromise on immigration. >> we have to get rid of the immigration issue altogether, it is simple for me to fix it. i think you control the border first, create a pathway for the people here, you don't say you have to go home. and that is a position that i have evolved on. because you know what? it has got to be resolved. >> and so today, immigration became the first order of business in the new congress for some republicans. >> first step in what will continue to be difficult, but achievable. and i don't think i have to remind anyone the last major attempt was over six years ago. now we will again attempt to commit the remaining resources needed to secure the border. modernize and streamline our current immigration system, and create a tough but fair path to citizenship for th
, many decades. this is something extremely well received. >> the politics of this, republicans as john mccain was the first to say yesterday, republicans have to deal with the facts of life here. now, ironically, if john mccain and lindsey graham and others had joined with george w. bush, this could have been done in 2007. >> right. what john mccain sort of didn't say but implied was what has changed about this issue? it's simple. november 6th, the 2012 general election. the overall share of republican votes was -- people that voted for republicans is white. 11% nonwhite. it is -- that is an untenable -- we saw in 2012, and it will only get worse if they continue to lose 70% plus of the hispanic vote. that's what's changed here. republicans broadly recognize it. the question is jose touched on it, the path to citizenship. that is the piece that is always the one that conservative republicans said we will not do this. we are validating illegal behavior, no matter what we do. now there are some republicans on board. marco rubio, john mccain, lindsey graham saying, look, this has to be in
of what we've done and what is left to do. >> and as she leaves the state department this afternoon, john kerry will arrive to be sworn in by justice alina keggen, and nor sentimental sendoff. 30 rock ends its seven-year run with lots of laughs and familiar faces. >> looked like another cold one in the midwest. >> bundle up, everyone. if you can, get hit by a car. >> according to the national weather service, you should, and i quote, leave work, get in your purpose bentley and be home with your sharks. >> if the democratic party controlled congress, i would see to it that he was punished in the worst way possible by having to come down here and listen to us. >> the show earned 14 emmys, had countless guest star appearances, some famous, and some not so famous. good day. i'm andrea mitchell. live in washington. good news and bad news in today's jobs report. the unemployment rate inched closer to 8%, but more than 150,000 jobs were added in january. revisions to last year's data showed stronger job growth than first predicted. joining me now forrure daily fix, chris, msnbc contributor and m
texas senator john cornyn, who has decided to make himself the de facto leader of the hagel opposition. >> the nomination of chuck hagel to be the next secretary of defense has already done damage to the united states' credibility in its attempt to deny iran a nuclear weapon. >> hagel is also likely to face questions about his position on gay rights after his 1998 comments, criticizing a u.s. ambassador nominee as openly, aggressively gay. hagel apologized and that former adviser, james hormel, now supports hagel's nomination. but much of the opposition to hagel is rooted in his loud split with the republican party over the iraq war and skepticism about his willingness to use force. in an interview with cnn, vice president biden argued that hagel is no dove. >> the idea of getting engaged in a ground war, in a country that's in transition is not a precipitation any military man would suggest. >> in many ways, obama's pick of hagel, who he forged a relationship with in the senate, then traveled with to afghanistan and iraq in july of 2008, along with cia nominee john brennan and incomin
here. >> good to be here. >> let's take a listen. john mccain is just now questioning, so let's listen in. >> sure. >> great members of this committee who have contributed so much to our nation's defense. senator hagel, members of this committee will raise questions reflecting concerns with your policy positions. they're not reasonable people disagreeing, they're fundamental disagreements. our concerns pertain to the quality of your professional judgment and your world view on critical areas of national security including security in the middle east. with that in mind, let me begin with your opposition to the surge in iraq. 2006 we lost -- republicans lost the election and we began the surge, and you wrote a piece in "the washington post," quote, leaving iraq honorably. 2007 you committed -- you said it's not in the national interest to deepen its military involvement. in january of 2007 in a rather bizarre exchange with secretary rice in the foreign relations committee after some nonsense about syria and crossing the border into iran and syria because of the surge, then a reference to
. senator john mccain released a statement saying while there are some differences in our approaches to this issue, we share the belief that any reform must recognize america as a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants. we should all agree that border security and enforcement is particularly important. house speaker john boehner released a statement saying we hope the president is careful not to drag the debate to the left. and ultimately disrupt the difficult work that is ahead in the house and senate. the president made it clear he is going to keep the pressure on congress. >> if congress is unable to move forward in a timely fashion, i will send up a bill based on my proposal and insist that they vote on it right away. >> joining me now is msnbc's joy reid and richard wolff, and the organizer at united we dream. joy, what is the main difference between the president's plan and the other introduced yesterday? >> well, the main difference is triggers that seems to be you can do whatever you want if there is a trigger. and for the republicans they believe you have to do significan
. senator john mccain took the lead and set the tone early on. >> our concerns pertain to the quality of your professional judgment and your worldview on critical areas of national security, including security in the middle east. >> john mccain did not always have grave concerns about chuck hagel's worldview. in fact, he named chuck hagel a co-chair of his 2000 presidential campaign. >> my fellow americans, i introduce you to a great republican, a great american leader, my friend, john mccain! >> how come mccain didn't get that kind of greeting, huh? or hagel, should i say. not only were hagel and mccain good buddies, john mccain wanted to give hagel the exact job he's up for right now. he told voters in new hampshire, "there's a lot of people that could be secretary of state -- secretary of defense. one of them i think is senator chuck hagel." but mccain sure has a different view of hagel today. he still can't get over hagel's opposition to the surge in iraq. >> do you stand by that -- those comments, senator hagel? >> well, senator, i stand by them because i made them. >> were you r
to the constitution limits what we can do about guns. >>> senator john mccain appeared at a breakfast in washington where he told a joke about himself and the low approval ratings of his colleagues. >> a guy ran up in the airport and say anybody tell you look like john mccain? i said, yeah. he says, doesn't it sometimes make you mad as hell? >> that's your morning dish of scrambles politics. >>> we tern to nbc meteorologist bill karins with the weather channel forecast. good morning you to, bill. >> the last 48 hours have been a blur. so much cleanup to be done. now we're doing it in bitterly cold temperatures, too. the problem is all the way up through connecticut. look at these wind gusts. we just gusted to 52 miles per hour in hartford. 55 in bridgeport. that is enough to shake the house and wake a lot of people up. if you're driving at this hour, if you can, well, don't. wait another half hour. things will improve in connecticut. again, all of these really strong winds are now heading to boston. boston just clocked in. that is the highest i've seen in new england. 59 mile-per-hour wind gusts. w
member. do you think the majority led by people like, well, john boehner and cantor are actually going to put their fingers on an immigration bill and pass it? >> i think they will, chris, and i hope they will. i think especially with the november election, the american people made it clear, i believe, that they want the congress and they want the president to tackle this issue and to finally get it done. i think what we've seen in the last few days is very promising, first with the senate proposal and now the president's proposal. at least we know we're having a serious discussion about it and we're more or less on the same field. >> i have always liked schumer politically and rubio, the fact he's with them, lindsey graham, i respect them all. given who they are. they're all different politics. are you surprised that rubio, who is obviously gunning for the presidency, has been able to make a deal with someone like chuck schumer of new york who is a liberal? is this something that can be done across the country, liberal/conservative compromise with teeth and also with something for peo
want to show everybody, we just got this video in, senator john kerry's nomination for secretary of state, unanimously approved by voice vote on the senate foreign relations committee floor during the meeting that they had today. so that is moving forward now. the full senate expected to vote on kerry's nomination later today. but, again, smooth waters there for what looks like to be the next secretary of state, john kerry. so, again, that vote coming up this afternoon. we do want to move on, though, and talk about who will now be considered the former secretary of state after the vote this afternoon, hillary clinton. she had an opportunity to speak about what it's like to be living in such a bipartisan world of washington, d.c., right now. again, her farewell week has been really one of high aplomb, but take a look at this. >> but it's become more so, and it's also resulted in less productivity, you know? you can be partisan, you can have a strong sense of the rightness of your position, but democracy and certainly legislative bodies require compromise. and you can't let comprom
john kerry's seat. it's the first time two african-americans will be in the senate statement. and john kerry about to be famous on the world stage, but even in boston, sometimes not everybody knows your name. >> love the report you did on that train wreck. they ought to get you for "60 minutes." >> i'm john kerry, senator kerry from massachusetts? >> our senator? i'm sorry, man. so sorry. >> good day, i'm andrea mitchell live in new york today. the gun debate took on new emotional force with the reappearance of gabby giffords in the senate judiciary hearing. joining me now for our daily fix, chris cillizza, msnbc contributor and managing editor of washingtonpost.com and ruth marcus. well, it was so personal, so emotional, so painful. chris cillizza, could anybody do a better job than gabby giffords to bring home the powerful impact of the gun debate and, in her case, the magazines? >> you know, andrea, it was incredibly sort of personal and touching, and i think even more so for those members of congress who know that she was at a constituent service event when this happened, that it c
brought the heat like hagel's self-described old friend john mccain. >> were you correct in your assessment? >> well, i would defer to the judgment of history to sort that out, but -- >> the committee deserves your judgment as to whether you were right or wrong about the surge. >> i'll explain why i made those comments -- >> i want to know if you were right or wrong. that's a direct question. i expect a direct answer. >> the surge assisted in the objective, but if we review the record a little bit -- >> will you please answer the question. were you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam. were you correct or incorrect? yes or no? >> when given a chance to respond, here is what hagel said. >> the comment i made about the most dangerous foreign policy decision since vietnam was about not just the surge, but the overall war of choice going into iraq. >> that point found broad support in our latest nbc news/"wall street journal" poll with nearly 6 in 10 americans saying the entire iraq war was
. alicia keys is doing the national anthem, beyonce will be there at the halftime performance. john tower, be kind. >> we have two from twitter. daniel, i was talking about doing the corona lime flips. i'm partial to citrus. the best way to drink a corona, give it to a and get a craft b actually tastes good. >> insulting my midsummer drink, nothing better than a corona. great show. "morning joe" starts right now. >>> well, i said it, and i don't remember the context or when i said it. if i had an opportunity to edit that, like many things i've said, i would like to go back and change the words in the meeting. i think in a larger context, i've said many, many things over many years. i have already stated that i regret the terminology. what i meant to say, should have said, it's recognizable. it's been recognized, is recognized that the united nations. that's what i should have said, and thank you. >> donny deutsch, how would you like to be secretary of defense? >> well, i certainly -- >> richard haass? >> job interview would show up maybe a little more prepared. >> a little more prepared.
former good friend, john mccain, just eviscerated him, grilled him, didn't give him a chance. yes or no. give me an answer. were you correct or incorrect? i mean, there is a way to try to do that, but clearly he came with a very hostile attitude. and it was very painful to watch. >> yeah. awkward at times. >> i mean, john mccain, mika, didn't let him answer a question. i'm sorry, out of that exchange, it was not chuck hagel who looked bad. >> ted cruz looked even worse. >> yeah. >> oh, my god. >> we're going to show all those coming up. >> he wasn't prepared, mika, in a lot of ways that were concerning. i think, again, the democrats, republicans, independents alike, if the republicans party thinks badgering an ill-prepared witness that way is going to help them with middle america, they don't know middle america. they could have just let him talk around in circles, but it was -- you know, you talk about the new senator from texas, john mccain -- >> i agree with you. >> as joe manchin said, it was embarrassing. >> compare it to a week ago, to a very prepared hillary clinton. whether badg
, john husted began stumping for this idea. hey, just an idea, right? now it's very quiet in ohio. and that leaves michigan. oh, michigan. michigan, my nominee of incapable of being embarrassed. move over, florida. michigan has a bill on the way, republican sponsor, quite unembarrassed by the attention now or his failure to pass the same kind of bill last year. "the bill got no traction last year. there were people convinced that romney was going to win and this might take electoral votes from him. but now that romney lost, now maybe even rick snyder, the governor, warming up to the idea. publicly, he's saying it's fair to change the rules since the election is not for a few more years yet. we started with six states on the map, republicans talking about changing the rules to elect the president so you could use the gerrymandered congressional maps to make the presidential election go the way the house vote went this year, where democrats got more votes, but republicans still held the office. we start with a map of six. two states have put the idea in the deepest part of the deep
and becomes law. >> four democrats joined four republicans including arizona senator john mccain, top g.o.p. advocate for immigration reform for years. influential freshman senator florida of cuban descent. >> i live surrounded by immigrants. my neighbors are immigrants. family are immigrants. married immigrant. i realize how critical immigration system works is for the hair tage and the future. >> the republican party is losing the support of the hispanic citizens. we realize that there are many issues in which we think we are in agreement with the hispanic citizens. but this is a pre-eminent issue with the citizens. >> this contingent first on verifiably securing the border, reducing the visa overstays,er-verify system and ban on illegal ail yeps receiving federal assistance including obamacare. the plan includes guest worker program for lower skilled jobs and green card for immigrants with advanced degrees. harry reid jumped aboard. >> i lo do everything in my power to get a bill across the finish line. >> they would have to pass the background check, pay fine and taxes and stay lega
against mob boss john gotti. she won the conviction that put him in prison for the rest of his life. several other prosecutors had tried to do that, but had failed to it. she did it. in 1996 she helped convict ramzi yousef for his attempt to assassinate the pope and blow up multiple planes in flight. he was the nephew of sheikh khalid mohammed. in 1991 she helped prosecute four-the men who helped orchestrate the embassy bombing in africa. president obama nominated mary jo white to be the what is essentially the top cop of wall street. >> as one former chairman said, mary jo does not intimidate easily, and that's important, because she has a big job ahead of her there is much more work to be done to complete the task of reforming watts to make sure american investors are better protected going forward. >> it's not the only thing you should know about her career given this nomination. it's also the matter of her decade as a defense attorney, not a prosecutor, but a defense attorney. when she left the prosecutor's office in '02, she went to a private law firm. she started prosecuting c
or opposed. >> mr. secretary. john kerry gets unanimous approval from his foreign relations committee in the senate. now it is up to the full senate for a final vote on the floor toda today. >> what a privilege to work with you and now to work with you in a different way. thank you. >> after 29 years in the senate who is his governor going to pick to temporarily replace kerry? did barney frank campaign too openly for that seat? >> is -- >> what does that mean? >> anybody but barney? >> no. >> this is a chance for you to make history. are you going to make history? >> well, i'm going to make an appointment of someone i'm confident will be a good steward and be interested in the people of the kwel for the four or five months until the people elect their permanent representative. >> the cabinet's last remaining republican is out as ray la hood said he is leaving transportation. hillary says good-bye. >> i don't feel i want to see peace in the middle east and prosperity for all people and i want to see women and girls given their rights and opportunities. >> and some australian radio host
the answer to that question. governor rendell, lightning didn't strike john mccain when he admitted his own party had a problem. there seems to be some truth talking, some movement towards compromise. are you optimistic about this? >> well, first of all, i'm glad senator mccain said what he did because we don't want the republicans to get any credit for having a moral -- they're doing this because they can read election returns, and they've got to fwet this issue at least beyond them. they have to understand there's a price to pay. do they pay the price if they're obstructionist on 100% background check? do they pay the price if they're obstructionist on high capacity magazines in they have to make that decision. on the fiscal cliff themselves, do they pay the price if they don't do something that is commonsense and a workable approach to debt? energy. all these things. we like wee winding tape to 2007 and -- george w. bush is really -- that tape speaks for itself. gornl bush did in 2007 introduce immigration reform that went basically nowhere. he made personal calls to members of his own p
for the next couple of days. i'm here with john pod hotter and bill kristol, founder and editor of "the weekly standard," and we're going to get right into it. john podhoretz -- >> podhoretz -- >> john podhoretz, you wrote a book a few years back called "bush country" in which you celebrated the achievements of our 43rd president, and george w. bush was a guy who thought deeply about imuation reform, poverty and trying to craft a middle class agenda for the gop. george w. bush is a figure that many republicans have been running away from. so tell me, do you think republicans were too quick to abandon george w. bush? >> i'm sorry, what? i was tweeting. i'm sorry. [laughter] um, well, yes and no. i think, obviously, politically republicans distanced themselves from george w. bush because it was politic thing to do. numbers don't lie. he became very unpopular. parties tend not to embrace figures and politicians who become unpopular. my view is that a lot of the distress over bush's domestic agenda from which republicans fled beginning really in 2005 had, it was a, it was an ancillary result of th
